S892 - The English Baccalaureate

Description

Inquiry into the English Baccalaureate (E-Bac): Education for Engineering (E4E) comments to the House of Commons Education Committee.


Abstract The E-Bac will lead to an increase in the number of students taking a specific range of level 2 GCSE subjects. This will be to the detriment of many young people who would be better served by a different mix beyond the core of English, mathematics and science. Other clusters of qualifications need to be identified that are given the same status, which provide different mixes beyond the core and include subjects that are of strategic economic national importance. For instance, E-Bacs in computing, design and technology, and in computing and the arts.
